LONDON TO PARIS 24 I CYCLE TOURS


London to Paris 24 ride really, really tough”, says Dan. “And I was completely gutted when I missed out on the 24 hour time limit for the event by just 30 minutes!” But to complete this gruelling feat of endurance at all is a huge achievement. And the ever-determined Dan has just signed up to do the event again in 2014, in a bid to beat this years’ time.


Dan, who now has a tattoo on his arm with the words ‘never give up’ says: “I follow a mantra and I recite it to myself sometimes - 'there are no ifs, buts or maybes - only I will!' - I push myself beyond what I think I can do.”


Cycle the London to Paris 24 – and raise money


for the disability charity Scope London to Paris 24 is a unique cycling experience made all the more remarkable by the riders who take part. You’ve got to be of a certain mind set to want to undertake the challenge of cycling 280 miles from London to Paris in 24 hours - and the camaraderie, banter, and team spirit which pervades the ride is something really quite special.


It is the ultimate endurance cycle challenge for charity. Organised annually by the disability charity Scope the concept is simple – cover just over 280 miles by bike from London to Paris in under 24 hours! It’s


not a race, rather an extreme sportive with riders setting off at midday from London, pedalling through the day and into the night in fully supported pelotons attempting to reach the French capital before lunchtime just 24 hours later. The route is broken down into manageable stages of approximately 35 - 40 miles with manned rest stops at the end of each leg where riders take on food and water supplied by a specialist catering team to fuel them through the challenge. Most riders will attempt the full distance or opt to ride relay style with a cycling partner.
